Dosing Pumps are ideal to feed nutrients, additives or foods into an aquarium in a measured amount using a programmable pump. The Balling method uses dosing pumps to add elements to the aquarium.
The Balling Method: Named after Hans-Werner Balling, the Balling Method solves the difficult problem of maintaining Calcium, Carbonate, Magnesium, and Trace Element levels in reef aquariums. The largest benefit of the Balling Method over other supplementation methods is control. Even the highest calcium and carbonate demands can be met, without the PH issues associated with Calcium Reactors. Because each additive is added independently from a container it allows the aquarist to fine tune their water chemistry.
